Synopsis: Surrounded by the sweeping cliffs and beauty of Big Sur, Kate Powell treasured her life at Templeton House ... and the family who raised her like one of their own. Although Kate lacked Margo's beauty and Laura's elegance, she knew she had something they would never possess -- a shrewd head for business. Driven by ambition, Kate measured her life's success with each soaring promotion. But now, faced with professional impropriety, Kate is forced to look deep within herself -- only to find something missing in her life ... and in her heart.
My review: Nora Roberts did not disappoint in this next installment of the dream trilogy Kate has that type A personality that drives some people crazy. She is all work and no play and is making herself sick by worrying so much. Kate has just found out some some disturbing about her father which now had her even more upset. Just when she thought things could not get worse Kate gets accused of one of the worst things she can be accused of in her line of work. Then along the way comes a white knight to help save her day. Kate does not know how to handle this. Kate faces a new journey in her life and learns to love for the first time. I loved Byron and how he handled Kate and learned how to make her happy. There were times when Kate would drive me crazy at times and then there were times I felt sorry for her. I loved the relationship that Margo, Laura and Kate have with each other. They have such a close bond that you don't see often enough. You will also find a surprise with Josh and Margo in this book. I am looking forward to reading the last book in this trilogy. I give this book 5 stars - this is a must read series.
